1) Rake is overrated much like crankarm length.

2) Aero works for crits and such. It's just a different shape of the same material. It's not going to explode... okay maybe it will it's carbon!

I don't know which part of that pseudophor is the least apt. But if you had ever a) designed a frame or b) fit a bike, you'd know that neither was even remotely true.
Dude, if your bike shop is fitting you by fork rake... there's something wrong...

Honestly, I can't tell the difference between 43 and 45 rake, which I have both. I can tell the difference between 43 and 47, but that's a pretty significant jump analogous to say 165mm to 172.5mm

I would love to hear about rake theories right about now...
